Another Problem With Being Obese

Bigger Belt Size Can Mean More Severe Urinary Problems

Men with large waists (i.e. 40 inches or more) are more likely have frequent urination and erectile dysfunction (ED) than their trimmer peers, says a report published in the British Journal of Urology International.

The study is the first to show that obesity in men not only affects their hearts and metabolism, but also their sexual and urinary health. Dr. Steven A. Kaplan, professor of urology at Weill Cornell Medical College, was the lead investigator of the study. Additional findings since the study indicate that losing just 2.5 inches in waist size may lead to a noticeable reduction of urinary problems.
